ESXi Is NOT Inferior To ESX!


Designing a VMware environment with the ESXi hypervisor is as natural as breathing but still I have customers questioning about my choice. Many customers’ IT guys and future vAdmins are still considering ESXi as an inferior product while ESX being the full-flavoured version.

So many bloggers posted about the rising of ESXi, and subsequently the fall of ESX, that I thought everybody knew VMware is going ESXi only. Well it is not the case, so I guess I will have to beat a dead horse again … to death I hope this time🙂

No, ESXi is not inferior to ESX. Actually ESXi is VMware’s next-generation hypervisor architecture.ESXi has many advantages regarding ESX especially since the latest ESXi4.1 version came out.

VMware ESXi and ESX Info Center is a portal where you can find all the information you need about ESXi. A good start reading is the Architecture of VMware ESXi. Then you may be interested in understanding the difference between ESX and ESXi. And finally why not give a look at the Frequently Asked Questions. In any case bookmark the portal web page now!

My motto is ESXi is definitely superior to ESX. Now the horse is dead, is he :)
